Bottle pours a clear pale copper/orange with a medium off-white head. Spicy caramel malt. Sweet caramel malt, some alcohol hops bitterness, finishes on gross veggie emptiness.

TizzleJizzle (770) - Garland, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2015
11.2 oz bottle. Poured a clear light yellow-orange with a decent white head. Taste of caramel malts, grain and slightly bready. Fizzy carbonation, thin body. Meh, not the best Oktoberfest I’ve had

shrubber85 (10359) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle (actually 3 bottles in a Masskrug). Nutty toffee malt and hay aroma. Amber with moderate head. Mildly sweet nutty toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal quinine and hay flavor. Moderate body. Pretty good.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Pours a medium yellow color with thick white head that sticks around for a little bit. Aroma of a bit of bready sweet malt that isn’t very characteristic of the style. Flavor matches with a deep bitterness that I wasn’t expecting. Not a big fan, but drinkable.

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Lake Manassas. Hazy pale golden, large foamy white head, decent retention. Aroma of skunk and grainy malt. The taste is caramel, raisin. Thin.

trexibmer (60) - - JUL 29, 2015
A Helles Octoberfest: don’t expect a copper or rich amber color. It is in the Octoberfest style since it is maltier and a tad sweeter than regular Warsteiner (Premium Verum). The alcohol content is not 5% but is listed at 5.9%. This is a nice beer for those that like Helles styled Octoberfest brew.

chinchill (4112) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 15, 2015
11.2 oz 2014 bottle a few days past the 2015 BB date. Looks as it should, with lots of visible carbonation rising thru a clear amber body to form a thick white head. Ample lacing is left on the glass. Skunky, but I allow some tolerance for this given the dating. Less malty than typical for style.
